    Hi everyone,

    Been a fan of this site for the last year - just officially joined.

    Probably not the most interesting question to ask, but can someone help identify which breed this is? I have a VERY friendly mixed flock (Ameraucana, Welsummer, Golden Laced Wyandottes) everyone is quiet and calm and no one pecks at one another. I'd like to keep the zen with my hens, but worried I just got a RIR instead of a RSL. Heard RIR's can be aggressive and peck at the other girls… don't want that to occur.

    Any help would be much appreciated! And… she looks too yellow to be a pure RIR but I don't see any definitive black or white tail feathers.

    Thanks again everyone!
    -Staci

    I don't believe she(?) is a red sex link or a RIR. maybe a mixture of breeds. She is very pretty tho.

    Just put "What breed or Gender," thread in the search box - it should pop up for you and then you just post like you did here.

    These guys look -exactly- like the chicks we got from TSC, and we were told they were RSL.

    If you hear otherwise, let me know! [​IMG]
